Sustainability is a way of thinking that is written into a company's DNA. It determines how big strategic or small day-to-day decisions are made and how the wider impact is taken into account in each of your decisions and actions. The important question here is not so much as "what” the company does but "how”. It covers all areas of the entrepreneurship, from HR and financial management to marketing and product development.
In the case of sustainable development, the key question is how the company ensures that its impact is as positive as possible. This means minimizing the negative impact as well as increasing the positive contribution - in the community, in the work and natural environments.
By delivering parcels to more and more people every day, we need to be aware of our impact on urbanized communities and offer solutions that bring people a better quality of life. Since 2019, DPDgroup has come up with a number of smart urban logistics solutions that reduce pollution and noise in cities and offer e-shoppers a number of flexible and environmentally friendly delivery options.
We have already achieved carbon neutrality today by measuring our CO2 emissions, reducing them and offsetting the remaining emissions. We invest in environmental projects around the world that reduce CO2 and produce clean energy.
For DPD, sustainability is not just a buzzword or a temporary solution - it is part of our bloodstream and we are ready to drive long-lasting changes that will make a better and cleaner living environment for all of us.
We aim at being the most sustainable delivery company in Europe.

Everyday heavy vehicle pollution has left its mark on nature. We try to use alternative vehicles and make wiser choices from nature’s points of view.
We protect the environment and always try to find more eco-friendly ways to send parcels. We measure carbon emissions per parcel in Estonia every day, we neutralize the carbon emitted into the air. We contribute to making our car fleet and infrastructure more environmentally friendly.
